A Filipina housemaid went up to the top of a seven-storey building in Saudi Arabia and threatened to jump down before she was caught by her employer in the last minute.

Police and Civil Defence rushed to the scene in the Western Saudi Red Sea port of Jeddah after receiving calls that the maid is about to commit a suicide.

Newspapers said police used loudspeakers to persuade the maid to delay her jump as her employer sneaked to the rooftop and caught her.

The papers did not mention the maid’s motives for the suicide attempt but said police arrested the girl for interrogation.

In another town, an Ethiopian housemaid committed suicide by hanging herself with a rope tied to the water heater in the bathroom at her employer’s house.

Sabq daily said the Saudi employer found the maid hanging in the bathroom and phoned the police in the central town of Zulfi.
